To all who enter listed here, I extend this warmhearted invitation: Please enter my aspiration.

Acquired to inform you a further a person of my secrets and techniques… I was born in the completely wrong century. My heart craves all that is at minimum 150 several years old. Give me a home like the a person this photograph portrays, decorated in a colonial English type, and I can dwell there endlessly. Make it possible for me to wear extensive dresses, decorated with silky ribbons and lacy ruffles – and I’ll dance by means of the day. That is the type I normally beloved, felt cozy and relaxed with. Hell, I’d even agree to have wall paper on my partitions if it appears to be like the a person up there *s*. The reality is… I imagine I possess a incredibly old soul… and I will not treatment *s*.

Our den (computer home, exactly where I sit and spout pictures and words and phrases onto Flickr) has a bit of this style’s spirit. Just a bit, and we redid it ourselves. When we planned the home I told Joe that I’d really like me a area exactly where the partitions will enable my imagination to fly high, to anywhere I’d like to go. This home does it for me, and it helps make me pleased.

And if you question if there is one thing I do like in the fashionable entire world… I guess you will not have to question… you know what it is by now, right? *s*.
